Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast
Description: Open for Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner, Tranquilo Cafe offers delicious and refreshing alternatives to the standard Central American "rice & beans" fare: Fresh Kingfish Ceviche, juicy Cheddar Cheeseburgers, catch-of-the-day Fish Tacos, marinated Chicken Fillet sandwiches, Quesadillas, House-made Chips and Guacamole, Vegetarian/Vegan options, and nightly Dinner Specials. With a recently added back-yard BBQ Smoker, we now feature succulent Baby Back Ribs, juicy Pulled Pork, and Mojo Chicken platters, along with our own BBQ sauce, and fresh made sides including our own fresh Corn Bread. Also featuring fresh brewed Nicaraguan Coffees (hot & iced varieties) and Espresso, fresh-made local fruit juice drinks, made-to-order fruit/yogurt Smoothies (including Minga's special; Banana-Avocado w/cinnamon and vanilla), daily-baked Cookies, Brownies, Banana Bread & Carrot Cakes, Ice Cream desserts, and much more. Famous for our Bonfire Parties, we're also the island night spot. A great laid back atmosphere, with a variety of music from all over the world (including local DJ Nights and live cultural music/dance groups). It's a terrific place to meet up with other fun-seeking travelers. Come early to our Happy Hour (5-7 pm), and check out the drink specials; Rum Punch, Sangria and many 2 for 1 rum drink deals. Also, the widest selection of imported beers on the island. Our deck is located right on the beach on the front side of the island, between the 2 dive shops, with a great view for sunsets and people watching.

Delicious food, great service and beautiful location! You can't come to LCI without a stop at Tranquilos. I haven't had a meal there that didn't impress me!

The staff (especially Troy - but honestly everyone!) were SO SO SO AMAZING. Tranquilo felt like home away from home. The food is great, the atmosphere is amazing. Honestly, I would not have had the same experience on Little Corn if I hadn't gone here the first night and met Troy and his friends.

I miss the delicious mango coladas and I miss this bar!

Great food, craft beers, all sorts of smoothies, and only gringos. You'll be paying more here than most places on the island, but if that's what you want or need while traveling, then this is your place.

Bartenders were good. Wait staff need reminders, but very polite.

Excellent lobster in coconut cream sauce. Arrive early not many tables available. Right across from beach.

Stopped here on a whim. Had lunch. The salsa was great, the quac was excellent!! All three of our selections were good. Steak, chicken and pork are smoked in house. It was fresh, flavorful and delish. I'm satisfied! The service was very very good!
